“Peace be with you, dear brothers and sisters, and may God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you love with faithfulness. May God’s grace be eternally upon all who love our Lord Jesus Christ.” Ephesians 6:23-24 NLT
Paul wanted to express the very character of God toward his brothers and sisters in Christ. Peace, love, and faithfulness. Each of these are listed as attributes of the Holy Spirit in Galatians 5:22&23. He concludes the book of Ephesians the same way he starts and finishes each of his epistles (letters), with God's grace. Oh grace, what marvelous grace. God's grace has brought us safe thus far and it will lead us home. We have sung these lyrics many times in the song "Amazing Grace". Indeed, God's grace is AMAZING!!! I, too, pray God's grace on you this day and through this coming year. In Jesus name!!!
